Does anyone do spacers for Shimano 10 speed gearing that will fit a Campagnolo cassette and hub? I still have Campagnolo wheels but wish to build a bike with a Shimano 10 speed groupset (it's all about the rapid fire shifters)!
Cheers for any help!
I assume they exist! ?!
How do you mean spacers? How would that work?
You can buy cassettes that will fit on campag freehubs with shimano spacing. Fairly niche though
Or a jtek shiftmate
The spacers between each sprocket are the issue with the incompatibility, from what I understand, so you could simply switch the spacers out for Shimano compatible spacing. I'd thought there were aftermarket spacers to make up for the difference in mech pull and alignment issues.
I'd hoped I could just get the spacers to alternately space the cassettes I already have, but thanks for that reminder about the shiftmate thingy.
I have used a shimano cassette with a 10s campagnolo groupset with no issues and perfect shifting. I'm assuming it would also work viceversa?
My experience of a 10s Shimano cassette with 10s Campag was ratshit. I think miche used to do a conversion cassette but I can't find it anymore. If your wheels are Campag/fulcrum you should be able to find a replacement shimano freehub so you can use a shimano cassette.
Weird, I run 10s 105 cassette on fulcrum wheels and 10s chorus groupset and its super smooth
Most cassettes have the first 3 or so cogs as a single piece so you couldn’t swap the spacers between them. Maybe on some cassettes you could but I wouldn’t imagine it’s something available to buy.
None of the ones I have are blocked together, they are all independent. It seriously cannot be hard to 3d print a spacer set for Shimano that fits the Campy splined freehub.
Are the spline patterns even the same?
Absolutely not, or I'd just use Shimano spacers...
Any experience anyone? It work well? Might end up selling wheels at this rate!
^^ With shiftmate ^^
You know what, I might actually have the right shiftmate thing spare...
I had Campag derailleur and cassette with shimano shifter though. So possibly not
Campag cassettes are longer a conversion cassette wont fit on a 10 speed shimano hub anyway without a dishes last sprocket.
A miche 10 speed shimano cassette with campagnolo (miche) spacer works well enough but still the shifting is not quite right so it's not sold.
If you upgrade to 11 speed I believe the you can mix and match. You'll need an 11 speed campagnolo splined cassette - Campag or Miche but as long as the derraileurs and shifters match you should be fine. Depends if you've already got the 10 speed parts...
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
